Though smaller than its Rego Park original, Barosa in Williamsburg retains the classic Italian menu and amicable service. Décor is traditionally rustic: Brick walls are adjacent to wood paneling; hanging lanterns and dark-wood shelves display antique espresso makers and aged pots. A flat-screen TV hovers above the bar but is unobtrusive to diners at four-top tables. Red-hot cherry peppers pop up throughout the menu: in the fried calamari arrabiata antipasti; atop the signature Barosa rigatoni with broccoli rabe and sausage in a flavorful garlic-and-oil sauce; and underneath the popular prime skirt steak, all with delicious results. The thinly pounded and heavily breaded house veal (or chicken) cutlet comes brightened by a blanket of tomato, red onion, and fresh-mozzarella mix. Thin-crust pizzas use fresh mozzarella, with dough made fresh daily, and cannoli, tiramisu, cheesecake, crème brûlée are made in-house. Forgoing Frank Sinatra tunes, the restaurant hosts live-music nights where you might hear an upright bass and electric guitar duo.Recommended Dishes
